Catan Junior is for families. Simplified building rules, child-oriented trading, and a more innocuous robber equivalent called the “Ghost Captain” provide access to the world of Catan games.
Catan Junior takes families with children ages 6 and up to a place quite different from Catan as we know it. There are no "settlers" around here. Instead, the players slip into the role of pirates who build their hideouts - called pirates' lairs - all over the islands and set sail to find new places and build more pirates' lairs there.
Although Catan Junior contains some simplified rules so that 6-year-olds can participate without any difficulty, it is still unmistakably a "Catan" game. Catan Junior is not just a game for kids but a genuine family game, to be enjoyed by adults and young children alike.
